      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      L-shell photoelectric cross section measurements have been made at 36·818 and 74·409 keV for four elements in the range 81 ≤Z ≤ 92. The measurements at 74·409 keV are found to agree with theory, within experimental uncertainties, but the experimental values at 36·818 keV are found to be higher than the theoretical predictions. The possible reasons for the observed discrepancy are discussed.

      Differential cross-sections for Compton scatterig of 0.279 MeV gamma rays fromK-shell electrons of lead are measured at scattering angles ranging from 30 to 150° to study the effect of binding on the scattering process. Measurements are made employing two Nal(Tl) scintillation spectrometers and a slow-fast coincidence set-up of 30 nsec resolving time. The experimental results are compared with the available theoretical data. The totalK-shell Compton scattering cross-section is 34% of the free electron Compton cross-section.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The scattering and absorption differential cross sections for nonlinear QED process such as double photon Compton scattering have been measured as a function of independent final photon energy. The incident gamma photons are of 0.662 MeV in energy as produced by an 8 Ci137Cs radioactive source and thin aluminum foils are used as scatterer. The two simultaneously emitted photons in this process are detected in coincidence using two Nal(T1) scintillation detectors and a slow-fast coincidence set-up of 30 nsec resolving time. The measured values of scattering and absorption differential cross sections agree with theory within experimental estimated error.
